Important dates on the Chabad Calendar - 12 & 15 Sivan

* This Shabbat (May 26) is the 12th of Sivan. In the time of the Temple, every Jew that made the pilgrimage to Jerusalem was required to bring certain sacrifices. During Passover and Sukkot, these sacrifices could be brought any time during the holiday. Though the holiday of Shavuot is only one day in Israel, the Jews that went to Jerusalem for that holiday were given seven days to bring their sacrifices. The final day to bring the sacrifices was the 12th of Sivan. Thus, this day symbolizes the culmination of Shavuot and of the of the season of receiving the Torah. The Chabad custom is to refrain from saying Tachanun (penitential prayers) from the beginning of Sivan until after Yud Beit Sivan.

Thoughts that count  - Since the spirit of Shavuot continues until 12 Sivan we bring this thought: “ ... Shavuot is an opportune time to achieve everything: in improving Torah study and Avodah marked by fear of HaShem, and to strive in Teshuvah about Torah study, without interference from the accusing Satan, just like the time of Shofar-blowing and Yom Kippur . . . “ [Hayom Yom, Sivan 4]

*This Tuesday is 15 Sivan. On this day in 1927 the Previous Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Schneersohn, was arrested by the communists for his remarkable efforts in spreading Judasim in Russia. His arrest unltimately resulted in his miraculous release on 12 of Tammuz. The Rebbe would often hold farbrengens on this day, noting that - though it was a sad day - it marks the beginning of a series of events which ultimately led the Previous Rebbe to leave Russia and and come to America, bringing Judaism to the Western Hemisphere.
